    This touching children's story is set in 1935-36. When Lydia Grace's parents fall on hard times, Lydia Grace is sent to live with her stoic uncle for a bit. Lydia Grace loves to garden, and although she knows she will be working in her uncle's bakery, she hopes to find some room and time for her plants as well. The sweet text is given in the form of short letters that Lydia Grace writes (first to her uncle and then back home to her parents and Grandma), and each spread of pages is beautifully illustrated. A Caldecott Honor book. ~ Melissa

    Your little gardeners are wearing their straw hats and gloves, holding their rakes and shovels, and clamoring for help with their gardens. Here you go! Every aspect of fun gardening is compiled in this book. "Getting Started" information helps them prepare, plant, and protect an indoor or outdoor garden. It leads them into making a mini-greenhouse, and preparing a compost pile to create healthy fertilizer for their plants. The "Grow Some Fun" section includes nifty garden ideas. Grow a garden in the shape of a name, grow a bean tent, make a catnip toy, and grow peanuts in a pot. In "Pesky Pests," kids learn to make homemade sprays and traps to keep pests at bay. Several pages are devoted to introducing children to garden friends (animals, birds and insects), and helping to attract them. Build ponds and bird houses, or grow certain plants that they like. This book also contains tasty ideas, like flower petal candy, carrot cake, and vegetable soup. Herbs can be grown for teas, seasoning, and flavoring. Besides edible uses, your garden can provide material for other activities. How about growing an Easter basket? Making dolls? Or sprouting a silly pet? A page of addresses for big seed and plant companies is provided so you can start planning right away. - Melissa

    Oh, the smell of rain, fresh dirt, and…spring! Doesn’t it make you want to get outside and start growing things? Square foot gardening is a great, easy way to have a garden with your kids. It starts with building a simple box to house the garden; for children they recommend a 3’ by 3’ box to allow kids to reach everything inside. The box sits on top of the ground, on top of a weed barrier, or you can put a plywood bottom on it if you want the garden to be portable! Wood strips divide your garden into 9 squares. Then in goes your special soil blend, which is full of plant nutrients and contains no weed seeds (unlike the soil in your yard!), so the only weeds you’ll be pulling out of there are whatever gets dropped inside, which is very minimal. The soil stays loose, so pulling those occasional weeds out is something a child can handle. Then kids get to decide what to plant in each square. The book is full of information, and talks about tons of different things you can plant, how many of each plant can be supported in a square foot, tips and tricks for making the small space work for growing almost anything, and how to care for and protect your garden. Easy-to-follow directions accompany each step and other fun activity ideas are included. After perusing this book, I couldn’t wait to go out and get my square foot garden started with my kids, and now we are enjoying the fruits (and vegetables!) of our efforts!
